Wild turkey advice
« on: April 12, 2017, 01:31:19 PM »
I usually fillet the breast and cut into strips, batter and fry.  Leg quarters for soup. 

So the Good Lord sent me a bird today!  I have two breast fillets and two leg qtrs.  I also have a 22in. Weber kettle that Im pretty comfortable with.  Ideas?

Marinate! Can also wrap in bacon for moisture. They are lean.

If it's in a bottle, on the rocks. If it used to have a pulse, brine it with Mad Hunky Poultry Brine, then cook as you desire. Good stuff!

Do what you want with the breast on the grill but I would do the leg quarters in the crock pot. It takes along time to make those things tender. Look for a recipe for crock pot carnitas would be my recommendation for the leg quarters.

Congrats on the gobbler!! 

I inject with creole butter, season and smoke covered in bacon.  That's what I have planned for my bird!
